PureDWTS Season 19 Finale Night One Media, DWTS Live Tour Update, And More

How about some Post Finale media for starters today? First of all, don’t miss visiting Pure Derek Hough for new interviews with Derek Hough and Bethany Mota. They talked with ABC7, Access Hollywood, and more. You can view their new Afterbuzz TV interview below. Note how both talk about what’s next for them. Derek plans to enjoy a little break and then come back and get creative again. Hmmm, I wonder what for?

Also, did you all take note during the show last night that Val Chmerkovksiy and Emma Slater have been added to the new Dancing With The Stars Live Tour? For tickets and Scheduling, see this link.

The are also a few pro changes in the Ballroom With The Twist shows too. You can read more here. We’re hoping to get more information on those shows soon.

Lastly, below is PopTVDotCom with some interviews after dark….

More coming. Stay tuned and here’s to tonight’s finale!! x

ETA: Here is some Good Morning America coverage…

ETA2: Here is a recap with ABC7. They have some beautiful photos too.

ETA3: Tom Bergeron talked with ABC about the finale. Below is a take, but, you can read more at ABC. Note how he mentions the 10th Anniversary season too….

Bergeron wouldn’t tip his hand on who he thinks might win from the final three tonight, but he said it’s been interesting to see the young talent in Mota, 19, Parrish, 26 and Robertson, 17.

“And someone, who has been a fan of this show since the beginning, Alfonso, tearing up the dance floor too,” he added. “It’s a really good group.”

Bergeron, 59, said someone like Mota — even in elimination — embodies the new wave of YouTube superstars and after almost a decade of hosting the show, this is really a change.

“It was really something. The day we announced this particular cast on ‘Good Morning America,’ we were in Times Square and Derek [Hough, Mota’s partner] elbowed me and he said, ‘Look!'” he said. “There was one of those big Times Square ads for Bethany’s perfume. Hello! Here we have a YouTube star with a fragrance.”

No matter who wins tonight, Bergeron said he’s happy with where the show is heading and excited heading into next year’s “landmark” 20th season.

“It’s going to be our 10th anniversary, because we do two seasons a year,” he said.
